Titanic star Sophie Winkleman tells of her cosy nights in with Lord Freddie Windsor

He was the playboy aristocrat with a string of celebrity girlfriends who once dabbled in cocaine – but he has been tamed by marriage to Titanic star Sophie Winkleman.

Instead of wild nights on the town, Lord Frederick Windsor, son of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, prefers ‘cosy’ nights at home in Los Angeles with his 31-year-old wife.

Miss Winkleman, half-sister of TV presenter Claudia Winkleman and star of ITV1’s new drama Titanic, lifted the lid on their lifestyle, admitting: ‘I am a big fan of cosy. I get very excited by a roaring fire and even a perfectly made cup of tea. And being married really is the ultimate in cosy so I couldn’t be more content.’

The actress, who married the 32-year-old merchant banker in 2009, also admits to next month’s Tatler magazine that she was ‘wobbly’ when first introduced to the Royals.

‘But the whole family has been very welcoming and warm,’ she added.

‘And let’s face it, all families are pretty complicated.

‘Yes, we come from different worlds – but I’ve never felt intimidated because I was lucky enough to be well educated and that gave me confidence, even if I didn’t have lots of surnames and castles.’

For now, the couple have also decided to shelve parenthood plans.

She said: ‘I want to have time to concentrate on my work and be with Freddie and enjoy our life.’
